governor romney talking about he don't need those people and the last time i checked we were we the people. and that's who the president is fighting for. we the people in eye yoe, we the people in wisconsin, we the people all across this country. governor romney has revealed exactly who he is and we've got to believe that he doesn't care about the 47% in this nation. >> watching the romney-ryan romance come apart in such an ugly way, the stench. i mean, here's another quote from politico. after paul ryan showed a powerpoint presentation to a crowd in orlando on saturday. the romney campaign was furious but ryan reportedly said let the ryan be ryan and let the stench be the stench. >> he didn't really say that, did he? >> the politico, they have people in the field. >> first of all, i will have you know there's nothing that fires up a crowd like a good powerpoint presentation. so kudos to paul ryan. it's kind of funny that mitt romney wouldn't embrace the powerpoint more. since in massachusetts he was the powerpoint guy and brought out the white board to do the medicare solvent under me whi
. >> yes. >> and i think mitt romney spoke from his heart when he talked about 47% of the american people basically being parasites. >> you are the psychologist, so only you can make a comment about that. but i'm so glad you mentioned paul ryan because he was on the trail today. and he was dispatched to colorado. where he took a question from a woman, who makes $350 every two weeks and cannot get off welfare. here's the conclusion to his rather lengthy insubstantial answer. >> a hand up a hand out. teach a man to fish, he can feed himself for a life. don't simply feed fish. >> don't feed the fish? feed the 5,000? what is this man talking about? >> well a trite almost insultingnessinsult ing answer to a serious question. there are struggling americans looking for real answers. all they're hearing from romney/ryan is tax cuts for the wealthy. let this trickle down system that's failed us in the past let's go back to that try it at least one more time. let's enrich our wealthy friends. and it's not selling in ohio, martin. and i don't believe it's going to sell across t
want to talk about that today. >> that was bill clinton slyly reminding the country about mitt romney's tax returns. about 30 minutes before romney took the stage at the clinton global initiative in new york city. mitt romney did not talk about his tax returns at the clinton event today, but hillary clinton did when she spoke there yesterday. >> one of the issues that i have been preaching about around the world is collecting taxes in an equitable manner. especially from the elites in every country. you know, i'm out of american politics, but it is a fact that around the world the elites of every country are making money. there are rich people everywhere. and yet they do not contribute to the growth of their own countries. >> she is so good. at being out of politics. she's so out of politics. bill clinton double underlined that point today on "morning joe." >> i think it's worth pointing out that of the 33 countries in the oecd, the group of well theier nations, only chile and >> i think it's worth pointing out that of the 33 countries in the oecd, the group of well theier nations, on
that video of romney talking badly about the 47% who pay no income tax. today, from romney, more compassion in a new minute-long tv ad. >> president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: romney's problem is historic, nobody has won the white house without winning ohio, romney sounded optimistic today in an interview with nbc news. >> can you win ohio? >> i'm going to win ohio, in part because i have for support of people in ohio. >> reporter: but the problem, obama is here, too, today, his 29th visit since taking office, and not letting anybody forget that other number, 47%. >> i don't believe we get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as victims who never take responsibility for their lives. >> reporter: the president stopped at campuses, ralliy young supporters. such a crucial day, both men took the stage at almost the same time this afternoon, and almost crossed paths as president obama headed to kent state, and romney to toledo. >> if you're registered, you can start to vo
. one of the things they talked about, they said it in "the new york times," let's get mitt romney and paul ryan out on the road together because ryan seems to loosen him up a little bit. but then, you know, some people are making fun of what happened in ohio yesterday. let me play that clip for you. >> wow. that's quite a guy, isn't it? paul ryan. isn't that something? >> ryan! ryan! >> wait a second. romney, ryan. romney, ryan. romney, ryan. there you go. i guess the question becomes are people pushing him into something he's not? he got good interviews in. is the trouble in part when romney tries not to be romney? >> yeah, i think it's ironic that they're saying let ryan be ryan. but throughout then tire process, we've really not been 100% clear who mitt romney is, right, because the guy who was governor of massachusetts, had he run as that guy, he would have been more like the guy we saw on "60 minutes." he's been forced to run this eternal primary where he's constantly trying to please the farthest right base of the republican party and so he isn't really being allowed to make
're already talking about debate expectations for next week and kevin, who is a senior romney advisor, described the president as cy young, one of the great all-time pitchers in baseball. you can't really set expectations higher than that for your opponent, suzanne. >> we know that president obama actually won ohio 51-47%. why are they actually thinking that they've got some wiggle room here, that they've got some influence? what do they think they can do in the weeks ahead? >> they're going to hit this economic message as much as possible. we heard mitt romney talking about that earlier this morning. these polls that have come out do show that he still has an advantage over the president when it comes to who it best managed the debt and the deficit, who would cut the deficit, and so we heard mitt romney saying earlier this morning that the national debt stands at $16 trillion. right now if president obama gets four more years, he predicted the national debt would skyrocket to $20 trillion. he is putting that message out there. i had a chance to talk to mitt romney about some of this
weeks for 15 minute infomecials and talk about the choices between obama or romney and speak in serious venues. get away from the rallies and talk to, you know, the cincinnati chamber of commerce. he should be -- lou: excuse me? wait a minute, brad, with all do respect, that would be an electric moment in electoral history if he were to move to the chamber of commerce. i respect the judgment mightily, but that one -- >> he needs to speak to serious people at serious venues to talk policy. you don't get that across at a rally or across to the people in a 30 second sound bite. lou: the polls, do they agree on the strengths and weaknesses? do they reveal that? you talk about the seriousness of a moment in which it's captured for free media, but the reality is that there are strengths and weaknesses, it seems, at work here, otherwise, there would be, i suppose, an outright tie between the two. chris, are there stengths that are being revealed here? weaknesses revealed on all of the polls? >> yeah, here's something to keep very much in mind. here's how the electorat looks different in 2008 a
often hear president obama talking about lincoln, mitt romney talking about ronald reagan, and now "newsweek" is out with a list of the ten best presidents since 1900. sir harold evans w is author offaus "the american century" has a tribute. it's a ploesh to have you here. >> thank you, madam. >> you gaekted together ten distinguished historians. what was the criteria? >> the cteriasha k o active presidents were they. it's very interesting. the historians, all -- every single one of them chose franklin roosevelt as number one. >> why? >> best predent since theodore roosevelt in the beginning of the century. if you ask tm why he did th asivnd effective, those two things. and he had a sense of america's ideal of itself. so they took those creria. they didn't know what the others were doing. they all voted a it's interesting the top three -- around the table and discussing this. >> no, no. it was all in isolation. they locked them in a room with an ice pack and 5,000 volumes of their own works andsaid, come up with -- >> that doesn't soundike fu >> all othem, they pretty much agreed o
. the aides i've talked to around romney say they have a great relationship, they talk several times a day. but in reality ryan does have a different set of advisers around him, a different set of speechwriters. i think everyone at this point is waiting to see if ryan, in fablt, goes rogue at some point. does he move to save his brand, which, of course, was this young gun, tea party guy. does he look at his future prospects and see romney as being something of a drag on whatever his future prospects might be for national office four years from now. >> well, ryan gives us two dilemmas. one, is this romney being insquare and overreacting or is it a problem for mr. ryan who has to protekt his brand for the future and if he decides his future is at risk, what happenses if he does go roguwro? >> well, in some sense ryan can help himself and romney at the same time. in other words, by deflecting the spotlight by him and saying, no, you're right, romney is the guy at the top of the ticket, romney is the guy you should be paying attention to, that also absolves him of some of the responsibility fo
than go back into the work force and you heard mitt romney talk about that in the interview today, that he wants to get more people back to work instead of being dependent on government, and so that is why you did not see him back away from that claim today. >> lori, do you recall the romney campaign removing or correcting any ads or frankly, the obama campaign, for that matter? >> i don't. i don't recall either campaign removing or correcting ads, and you know, i don't think this campaign is any different than other campaigns. there is very rare instance of a campaign or even a third party group taking an ad down or issuing a corrected version of it. >> yeah. i did an interview with debbie wassermann-schultz and they had put out an ad, i think it was the dnc or super pac, i can't remember, maybe the dnc but it was an obama campaign ad. she had misquoted the "l.a. times" and made it sound like they were confirming something which was not what the article said. they didn't retract that ad, to my knowledge. we'll continue to look for that. lori, appreciate it. jim, thanks. let us kn
should have. >> go ahead. >> it's a little hard for mitt romney to talk about what he is going to do on health care when he said he is going to repeal all of the affordable care act then say i'm going to keep some parts of it. so again, it's sort of like dude, exactly what are you trying to do here? i think the difference between george w. bush, he ran as a compassionate conservative and he had his conservative base locked up. romney's dealing with people whobds we're not really trusting you. if you're the obama campaign, what jim messina should do, he should play the video of alec baldwin and glenn ross saying always be closing. the one thing you cannot understand, a poll's a poll. folks have not cast any ballots, so the obama campaign should stay aggressive. stay absolutely aggressive because if you just sit back a little bit, you could cause this race to narrow. that's the last thing they want. >> thanks very much to both of you. and later in our hour, our guest, a man who once said mormonism is a cult said this race is not over and he's got one thing he says mitt romney to do to
. meanwhile we are talking about whether it's terrorism. romney is biting on it. it's irrelevant. four ambassadors are dead. planned. we know it. move on. >> greg: it's clearly not terrorism. self-esteem implosion. mandate disaster. the speech today, it was a foreign policy version of that warning that comes on a mattress label. you know, it's like we don't stand for this. but i'll tear it off anyway. first he says it's not about the video. then he says it's not about the video. you get a straighter response from silly straw. he did strike a careful balance between and apiecement. >> bob: eric's point is well taken. why does romney continue to bite -- >> dana: the administration is covering something up in past 12 days. let's listen to senator barassa who was on last night. >> i think the president is way offbase on this. i sit on the foreign relations committee. top secret briefing on what happened in libya. they're stone walling. >> dana: i don't think the administration does want us to talk about this. >> eric: how much of the vote will swing if it's terrorism or they knew? when the
mitt romney is saying. he is saying iran is that close to going nuclear. he talks about syria and 20,000 dead in that ongoing conflict and the muslim brotherhood leading now in egypt. how is he handling this? >> well he is disingauged, well the president is disingauged. romney is pointing out a very concrete pattern on disingaugement on america's foreign policy. we're projecting weakness at a time we need to projecting strength. we're showing feebleness when we need to show resolve. i was amazed in the tick-tock on the call he made on the 12th of septem president that it was revealed that this was the first time the president had talk to the libyan president. i can't imagine that in this part of the world whether a new leader takes office that the president of the united states doesn't seem to understand how important that personal relationship is and didn't bother to call the president of libya when he was sworn into office earlier this summer. bill: one more thing. i just want to make this quick. i don't mean to cut you off but in interest of time here, where does this go, if anywh
points. ten-point lead is bad also from a media narrative perspective, the more we talk about romney losing, battling ohio, the more that becomes a perception among voters. the romney campaign doesn't -- certainly is not happy with this poll out today. >> talking about romney and ohio, that's where he is today, to gain some traction. he was joined this morning by a guy, i know many of us will recognize a really world class, world famous athlete, ohio native who got up there and talked about winning, talked about success. here is jack nicklaus. >> when i was competing, i didn't lean on someone else in tough times. i knew i had to do it on -- what i had to do on the golf course to succeed and when i won, i certainly didn't apologize for my success. >> so, peter hamby, i play devil's advocate. i love golf. working on my swing. who doesn't love jack nicklaus. here you have romney, needing middle class votes in ohio, how is he helped by a man who has been the face of professional golf, doesn't even live in ohio anymore? >> it is hard to hate on jack. the guy has 18 masters. look, he said
for jobs. jan crawford and nancy cordes with the president at the romney in ohio promoting free trade. jeff glor on the call that every football fan is talking about. >> it was awful. that's all i'm going to say about it. >> pelley: and these images helped change america. >> how could you not ask the question "what ever happened to that kid?" >> pelley: seth doane with the man who uncovered the stories behind the faces. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. six weeks before an election that may turn on the state of the economy, a new survey out today finds that americans are feeling better about things. consumer confidence is at its highest level in seven months, largely because more americans expect the jobs picture to improve. but confidence is still at what's considered a weak level. home values are increasing. another report out today says prices in 20 major cities rose 1.6% in july. that's the fourth straight increase. but prices are still 30% below where they were before the housing bubble burst. stock portfolios are loo
. >> stephanie: here is mitt romney talking about armageddon caused by obama. dogs and cats living together. >> romney: syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador of libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. >> dictating events all over the world. we need to be is have military bases throughout the middle east and when i'm president not only will we be bombing iran -- >> stephanie: i didn't think the world could hate anyone quite as much as george w. bush but romney -- he's already preinsulted the world and he's not even close to being in office. john in las vegas you're on "the stephanie miller show." welcome, john. >> caller: thanks for taking my call. >> stephanie: thank you. >> caller: i would like to talk about the voter suppression laws the governors are trying to pull. i think it's funny how
on china saying that if you look at romney's record at bain capital, all that talk is fake. >> when you hear this newfound outrage, when you see these ads, these running problems seem to get tough on china, it seems a lot like that fox saying we need more secure chicken coops. i mean, it's just not credible. >> and larry, you can hear the confidence in president obama's voice because not only in ohio is he ahead, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> all right. i don't get any of that. i'm not sure what his message was. let me say
romney mentioned it on leno and we will talk that about later on the show. i will say in times of duress, i always go straight to camera, after the break, as both campaigns barnstorm and blanket the air waves in battleground states, one factor that could make six weeks largely irrelevant and could spell trouble for governor romney. >> i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire, and time is running out, if we want to save this house, we better do it now. guess what? time is running out. you know when early voting starts in ohio. in less than a week. i was saying last week, 45 days, there aren't really 45 days left. they got to turn this thing around or they lose. >> team romney's hunt for a red october next on "now." bob... oh, hey alex. just picking up some, brochures, posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race.
was his wife ann romney. we were talking about this during the break. on jay leno last night asked about comments she made regarding the press and asking them to stop it. let's he what she had say ike seeing you get mad. did you get feedback? did you have focus people go, that's wrong? >> no. i stepped out of the interview like oh, dear, did i say it a little strong? no. everyo i've seen is like giving me high ve wha do you make of ann romney as a surrogate at this point in terms of burnishing her husband's brand? >> we hear early on as you said the mitt stabilizer, humanizing him, but i think maybe mitt was rit wn h ,t t fund-raiser that we're using ann sparingly so people don't get tired of her. because i think -- i'm not sure how well she's wearing, you know, anger, be it's very understandable, any political spouse has good reason to feel angry beust'sard t h ose ndac on someone you love. definitely. and yet, it's not that appealing. it isn't just ann romney. i mean when bill clinton got angry on hillary's behalf, didn't work thatwell. when teresa heinz told a reporter to shove , not
for romney to come in and say the state is cratering. >> romney was talking about ohio under governortaft. the recovery hadlready started because of the recovery act and to iusof thealonth and president obama doesn't credit for what's happening in ohio. but you're right, they have contradictory messages. and mt romney's coming here to ohio and trying to say everything is doom and gloom, but our economy is on the rebound and oeou in large part because our president gave us the stimulus bill, the recovery act, which enabled me and other governors across america to keep our states from falling ever deeper to a depression. and then the president inteenes the american auto industry, went out of every ght jobs in ohio is related to that vital industry. that's why the president is ten points ahead, according to "the new york times" poll, and i think is going to win ohio. rtin, no republican has ever wo t pdewit d n'in -- i don't think he has a chance of winning ohio in this election. that means the president will be re-elect for a second term. >> we should also say that unemployment in ohio no
. mitt romney losing major ground there, according to new polls. before we go there, got to talk about one problem, that both candidates agree the world is running out of time to fix. let's turn to the united nations general assembly where the much anticipated speech byo outgoing president was overshadowed by mohamed morsi. listen to how he introduced himself. >> translator: i am the first egyptian civilian president elected democratically and free, following a great, peaceful revolution halted by the entire world. >> let's go richard roth, covers the u.n. for us. listen to the speech, it sounds like he's stepping it up, ready to be this world leader, world negotiator. is that fair that he's made the move from muslim brotherhood to world leader? >> reporter: well, i think he's still both things. the leader of egypt, decades ago, nasser and others, they had a prominent place when it came to the middle east. there has been this vacuum ever since. president mubarak had never even been here at the u.n. in the last 15 years and played a much quieter role on the global stage in the middle ea
the buckeye state. we also talk about greece the. cheryl: the romney reboot is underway. the mitt romney kicking off his bus tour in ohio with paul ryan at his side. the elephant in the room, the revote. can this reboot happened before romney runs out of time? let's talk about this reboot. do you think that he is sending that this reboot is coming too soon or too late? is of the wrong message? it means that romney is in trouble? >> i don't think it necessarily means he's in trouble. although a lot of people are saying that. it is mainly a matter of whether the message that he has been conveying these groups of people he is talking to in the swing states is the right one or not. i have had misgivings about it. i spent sunday looking at videotape of the stump speech that he gave in las vegas. i think it was last thursday. this was part of the review. and he said to have a plan to re-energize the american economy. the first thing we're going to do is crack down on cheaters. meaning china. the second were going to do is pursue energy independence. i'm sitting there thinking, well, those may
talking about being eye candy and having mitt romney meeting with leaders to try and solve these problems. that is what will be hit -- see him do. lou: and yet, and yet president obama, despite brushing aside the prime minister, despite just simply refusing to meet with any number of the leaders who one would have believed, as we pointed out, are from that statement by the candid obama some five years ago, really. it just makes no sense, what is happening here that suddenly the campaign takes priority over the business of state. >> well -- lou: and there is no comment in the mainstream media. >> well, the mainstream media has totally brushed anything this president has done a side of what is becoming more and more clear, this president's policies on the economy have failed and failed miserably. if he is reelected we will have four more years. now it is becoming more and more clear that his foreign policy is crumbling around the world, and is not just the middle east. people are missile defense systems out of europe to appease russians. they spend $700 billion more on defense. he has tried
. when talking of, you know, as it pertains to the campaign, mitt romney and everybody in his circle are going to be looking at things to criticize about anything that would have come from these meetings. >> nitpicked open mic moments, oh, my god he didn't hug enough kissed him on one cheek not both cheeks. he seems to be playing it safe politically but gave a great speech. >> he gave a fantastic and direct speech. he was perfectly forceful when he had to be. he also state america's place in the world. >> if you're winning you not only play it safe but give a strong speech that covers all sides. he is winning. let's show a chart here of all the different polls. it shows you as you see the blue and red die verge be, president obama gaining now what is a noticeable lead in this race. is he pulling away for good here michael? >> you start to see these trends and start to say ok, ask your question the only way to answer that question is to look at where mitt romney can go. he can't go after him on foreign policy this week, because the president hasn't engaged him there. he can't go to th
messages for mitt romney and president obama. who are they talking to and where in ohio? >> reporter: mitt romney is in the middle of this campaign bus tour through the state. it's lasting three days. he's doing three campaign rally. this is the latest poll showing president obama with a 51%, 44% lead. >> there's so many in our country that are hurting right now. i want to help them. i know what it takes to get an economy going again. >> reporter: as for the president, this was his 29th trip to ohio before taking office. he held rallies at two college campuses. obama targeted the middle class vote while speaking to supporters at bowling green university. >> we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years with the right policies. that's what i'm fighting for. that's why i'm running for a second term as president. that's what's going to be important to ohio. >> reporter: the closer and closer we get to election day the candidates will have to start weighing where they want to spend more of their time and mony. of course ohio will be at the top of the list. >> we'll see
the hispanic strategy that the romney strategy has been let's talk about the economy. the cuban americans and puerto ricans and in hopes we can peel off just enough of them because maybe that will be the trick. the problem is in florida of the hispanic electorate has changed quite significantly. the fastest-growing group are dimond puerto rican latin american immigrants for whom immigration is a defining issue in a litmus test issue. roughly a third now. so i suspect he's going to have a hard time winning florida in part because of the changing demographics of the latino electorate in that state. >> what you think about all of this? to years ago they brought on the brand new party and the new type of republican party that maybe wouldn't make what of what appear to be some of these mistakes the romney campaign is making. what do you make of all of this? do you think that is correct? >> christa will stipulate what has been said with immigration for example there is a fascinating moment during a republican presidential campaign that happened last year during which you have mitt romney, new g
, president obama heads to ohio today with an eight-point lead according to "the washington post." mitt romney is there today, too, talking jobs and taxes. >> is there anybody who thinks that raising taxes will help grow the economy? >> no! >> his plan is to continue what he has done before. the status quo has not worked. >> romney attacking someone on taxes? that's like me attacking someone for being fashion nat in politics. >> reporter: romney is at a two-day bus tour with his running mate. >> after four years of getting the run-around, america needs a turn-around. >> reporter: it's a tough state to make a pitch for 12 million more jobs. ohio's unemployment rate is lower than the national average. in ohio and seven other states today, the president releases another add slamming romney for dismissing the 47% of americans who don't pay taxes. romney's new add today will focus on struggling american families. and he will likely run into some of those families in florida where another "washington post" poll says the president now has a four-point edge. lynn. >> tracie potts in washington, thank
this in a way that is consistent. i would also say if you look to mitt romney, if you have a republican nominee from a state like florida or new jersey, i think you're going to have someone talk about this, but then you're talking about the dense, coastal states in which you are actually forced in a anyplace like virginia. colorado is a state where president obama was was really over perform. you have a large number of voters that are earning over $100,000 per year and a large number of voters who are unmarried women. he is not doing quite as well as he had been anticipated to do there. in ohio he is doing much better. i think that connecticut is a lot better than what people anticipated. you want to pick carefully and deliberately about the way you frame your policy. one reason conservatives were very unimpressed as the paul ryan for someone who is very careful to say that i put a safety net. we want to make it more sustainable for the future. that message has gotten drowned out, in part because of how it is framed. because they haven't been able to successfully counter the framing coming from
